News and Exhibitions
Welcome to Spring!
It is already March! The good news is that the evenings are already getting lighter. In Cornwall there are fields and fields of yellow with the daffodils now in full bloom.
The good news is, I am back at the easel. Albeit I am in the spare room and struggling with the light. I have been looking at Garden Studios but am more likely to end up with a shed from B&Q...
This week is much warmer with temperatures of about 10 degrees celsius. I am looking to get out and about this coming weekend with my paints so watch this space.
In 2019 I hope to continue with exploring the world of semi-abstract even more, working much looser and perhaps taking it a stage further as well as continuing to paint those little independent shops and businesses that catch my eye..
Don't be afraid to follow me on facebook if you can! x
Adding the Blue
My first Adding the Blue Art class of the year will start on Thursday 28th February.
Thank you to everyone who attended and supported the Adding the Blue Exhibition at The Salthouse Gallery in St Ives between 1st and 4th December 2018. A massive thank you to Penny Rumble, Caroline Atkinson and Digby Atkinson for their huge contribution to provide demonstrations. Although it was cold and wet outside for most of the time, the atmosphere was warm and positive within the gallery and some amazing pieces of work were created.
I am now looking at doing something similar in the Spring so please watch this space!
A massive thank you to the Newquay Society of Artists who invited me to attend and provide a demonstration and chat during the evening of Tuesday 11th December. There was a large turnout of artists who attended and it probably wasn't the best time for me to be trying a paper that I had not used before. I decided to try the Indian Khadi 320gsm rag paper which has a lovely texture and smell. It was an honour and a privilege to be asked to do this for a second time and I had a very enjoyable evening there. This is the finished painting from that demo.
Digby Atkinson and I have signed up for Open Studios which will be run from the Lifeboat Studio in Porthleven starting from 25th May 2019.
I am currently working on 2 commissions. If you have an idea that you would like to discuss, then please do not hesitate to contact me on 07725877962
Thank you all for your continued support and for visiting my website which is genuinely appreciated.
